||Medical examinations of workers engaged in plastics manufacture and exposed to isocyanates included respiratory function, blood and other laboratory tests and examination of immune status. After 3 years of isocyanate exposure the primary decompensation of functions was replaced by stable compensation. On prolonged exposure, tolerance of the allergenic action of isocyanates, with preservation of high immunological reactivity, was detected. Allergic respiratory disorders are reversible. General toxic, irritant and fibrogenic actions of isocyanates are in proportion to length of exposure.
